How do I print a copy of my return filed in the TurboTax CD/Download software?

SOLVEDby TurboTaxTurboTax Windows6400Updated January 11, 2022

When you print a records copy of your return, we include everything that was sent to the government, plus extra documentation and calculation worksheets.

However, the printout won't include copies of the entry forms you got in the mail, such as W-2s or 1099s. If you need copies of those, contact whoever issued them originally (e.g., your payroll department, payor, bank, brokerage, etc.).

Before proceeding, we recommend that Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is on your system. Most computers already come with it, but if yours doesn't, you can get a free download from Adobe

To print through TurboTax:

  1. Open the return you want to print
  2. From the File menu (or TurboTax menu if you're on a Mac), choose Print
  3. In the pop-up window, select the form set you want to print (tax return, specific forms, etc.) and then select Preview Print Copy (on Mac, select your print options and then select Continue)
  4. Your forms will open in Adobe Acrobat Reader. Select the "printer" icon from the menu to open the print window, then after making any adjustments in the window, select Print at the bottom

You can also print directly from a saved PDF of your return by double-clicking the PDF to open it and then following the instructions in Step 4.
